Looking for thoughts and opinions. Will be used heavily for gaming, animation, recording/editing.
Looks good, you may want RAM that isn't red and matches your build colors
The Founder's Edition isn't that great of a cooler for builds that have plenty of airflow, you should get a card that is open-air, not blower style
For just a little more you can get the EVGA G2 PSU, which is full modular
Sorry I'm PC illiterate, what do you mean by Founder's Edition not being a great cooler? Are you saying to change the CPU cooler?
Also I switched to a EVGA G2 PSU.
Looks really good. Get a G2 instead of a GQ and I think you'll be fine.
Personal taste, but I never loved the phantom cases. Throwing this out there as a red/white alternative: http://pcpartpicker.com/product/jQ648d/corsair-case-cc9011083ww
